24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By S. Ganguli on September 17, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This is a great place to get a clear introduction to first-order modal logic. It elegantly straddles the line between philosophy and mathematics, without getting bogged down in the details of either (as much of the rest of the modal logic literature seems to). This book, along with Nerode and Shores "Logic for Applications"--which also focuses on tableaux proofs--really shaped my thinking about modal logic.

If you are a practicing mathematician who is very comfortable with using first order predicate logic, if you're interested in modal logic and want go beyond just the propositional modal calculus, then this is the book for you.

It proceeds at a good pace. It's balance between rigor and informality is perfect, leaving out endless details that sometimes plague books on formal logic while including what you need to know. And it includes discussion of history and philosophical issues involved without assuming you're a philosopher who already knows this stuff. In short, for the reader I described above (which includes myself), I can't think of a better introduction to this subject.

This is probably the best and most stimulating logic text I have ever read---which is saying a great deal. Congratulations to the great Melvin Fitting and his co-author Richard Mendelsohn on producing such a thoroughly excellent text. If you enjoy formal logic and its philosophy, this book is a must-read.

I started to learn Logic one year ago and I just finished the reading of this book. It is excellent. It is not an easy reading, like all the texts on Modal Logic. But it is complete, very ingenious in many respects.

This is an excellent text for those with a math background because it is an advanced text willing to labour over detail. If you're interested in a challenging introduction to modal logic, this is the book for you.
